If what you meant was how to develop a program in VB that talks to the Arduino, that is quite a different story.

Take a peak at all the ways that a PC, phone, etc. can talk to the Arduino.

any tips on how to upload a program via .net?

Why make things hard and reinvent the wheel?
Just use the IDE and avrdude will do the rest.


Hi

Thanks but I'm not quite sure what you mean - could you expand pleae?

Hi.

That looks useful thanks.

I'm wondering if it's too complicated for what I'm after though.
I have a red led on pin 11 and a green led on pin 12.
My .net program just needs to send 4 commands:

- both off
- both flashing
- red only on
- green only on
Is it possible to find out the code the arduino needs to do this and simply send it out to the serial port?

This is code that you write on the arduino. It is very simple code, you can find out how to do it by visiting the learning section of this web site.

Yes they are grumpy, critical and superior. Just the sort of responses that drives people away - maybe that's what they want though - leave them alone in their little club??


Yes, good idea. Go to a forum where they are prepared to help people who aren't prepared to learn anything. Wherever that is.
